This may be old to you, but its new to me, and I thought I'd share & send my 'thanks again' to the folks at the IA/LMA!

I remember that it happened a few months after I found the Archive.

To think this was the year before I was "born"...figuratively speaking, of course. I've been "around" for 5/6ths of the (our) Forum's existence, but Dire, as his prehistoric name (and behavior) suggests, was here in the primordial ooze, when it was one big hodge-podge of IA. So were a few others, if I recall correctly.

By the way, it's "a" historical; if Rob see's this, you don't know what might happen (even though the Brits always drop their "h's"...and thus, in speech, it feels okay to use "an").

yeah, drives me up the wall when (you) Yanks talk about 'urbs' (herbs) during TV cooking shows (number 2 in my list of favourite activities behind anything/everything Dead-related). Bet Jerry would have pronounced it perfectly ........... for another dollar.

PS Apols for spelling "favourite" correctly.

One's American and one's British. (spelling, that is)

And of course we really need to argue about which is better ...

Well, actually, no...even the Brits don't accept "an" because there is an H there, that shouldn't be dropped...not that it matters. Amazingly, online, it says people say it often enough it is becoming acceptable again!
